Sophos Enduser Protection is a bundled security suite that offers comprehensive layers of protection for businesses, all of which are managed from a single console.
Key features of Sophos Enduser Protection include anti-malware, email safety and website filtering for threats and content, which enables users to defend their employees against online threats and keep them focused on work. Application control allows businesses to manage which programs employees can access.
Sophos Enduser Protection bundle also contains advanced features like encryption and data loss prevention tools, which are not standard in many security suites. Meanwhile, a mobile device management component enables businesses to secure employee devices, such as smartphones and tablets, in addition to workstations. The suite is priced per user rather than per device, so businesses only have to a single fee even for employees with many devices.
Sophos Enduser Protection bundle works on multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac and Linux. Support is available to subscribers 24 hours a day.

All in all very happy and I highly recommend Sophos.
I have been using Sophos for more than 7 years now and have it installed on all my Macs. Easy to use, easy to install, great protection.
Since last year I have started experiencing trouble when backing up my Macs. Somehow there seems to be an cpompatility problem between Sophos and Timemachine and when backing up, I need to turn off scanning and live protection to make sure it goes quick. If it's not turned off, Time Machine announces a backup time of sometimes 120 hours.

As we have many Mac and Linux users, we tried to find the best solution for these systems and for Windows as well. Not an easy thing.
Finally, despite Sophos was not our choice for Windows, we liked it so much that we decided to choose it for Mac and Linux systems.
Sophos EndPoint Protection doesn't eat much resources as many other Antivirus do on those systems which was one of our priority.
Easy to use
Very Low system resources consumption on OS X and most Linux systems.
Easy to install and manage.
Management Console has everything and looks new and very nice (2016).
No quick scans.
Can not install the agent for OS X and Linux from the management console but it is possible to push it on Windows.
Not sure this is the best EndPoint Protection for Windows, but this is actually the best for Mac and Linux users available on the market.

Rock solid product with excellent support that offers superior protection for endpoints.
Need easier guidance within the management console for creating a support tickets.
Make sure you do POC on multiple endpoint products before choosing a solution for your company.
Tommy from COVEO Solutions
We evaluated many antivirus and went to the conclusion that none is perfect. Sophos run nice on Mac and Linux, which is hard to find. We had no other options than choice Sophos! All in.
It installed many services and apps on Windows. When you open add/remove or check the taskmgr, a lot of process!
If you have to support Windows, Mac, and Linux, this is the best option

Cloud Management is great. Your able to create policies that are implemented to all clients on the fly. Blocking USB devices has never been easier.
Since it's cloud managed you required always active Internet connection. It's heavy on network utilization even when not applying new policies.

Easy to implement, easy to use after figuring out quirks. Cost effective.
It is cloud based, so you don't need to have software installed on a server and can access from any location. It's also easy to install and supports both Mac and Windows. The dashboard gives an overview of what is going on with your machines. Most times you can clean up things right from the cloud interface, but if manual clean up is required there is generally advice on what to do through links.
Some of the features take a bit of digging, for example adding exceptions could be an easier process. Also the few interactions I've had with support have been lackluster, even to the point of not getting responses at all.
Manuel from Fbmud25
Easy to deploy, easy to manage software. Support is pretty good. Endpoint management is simple. For the most part it is pretty accurate in detection.
Installation requires reboots. Sometimes the software will give you false positives on well know tools. Sometimes I get false positives on things such as psexec. The false positives are the biggest negative.

One website to control all the clients.
Easy of use.
Not a resource hog like Norton or other Enterprise software.
Jon from Tower Ford
We installed on all personal and work devices to protect from intrusion. Works great on both MAC and PC based devices. Install is a snap, you can monitor and control programs from the website. Works hard in the background without making a fuss to the user or taking up a ton of memory.

The primary reason for choosing this is the recommendation from our IT support vendor who also manages security. Im thankful for that as I find the interface is not as intuitive as other security products Ive used.

I have used Sophos for many years and I think they have one of the best endpoint solutions out there for small and large businesses.
It is easy to use and setup and it has great functional use.
